The World’s Best-Selling Server Meets Its Perfect Match

We first introduced our Dell OpenManage Essentials systems management console in the spring of 2012. By November of that same year, over 40,000 customers had registered to download the software. By July of 2016, OpenManage Essentials expanded into network management to become a game-changing, essential data center resource.

Through years of updates and enhancements, users have consistently relied on OpenManage Essentials for:

  • Comprehensive monitoring of their Dell EMC and third-party infrastructure
  • Automation of critical, and frequent IT management tasks
  • Continuous availability of Dell EMC PowerEdge servers

Now that Dell EMC PowerEdge is officially the world’s best-selling server, aligning our number one servers with a world-class IT infrastructure management solution is more important than ever.

Meet the Next Generation of OpenManage Essentials: Dell EMC OpenManage Enterprise  

Designed for the modern IT architecture, our new Dell EMC OpenManage Enterprise systems management console radically simplifies, automates and unifies infrastructure management tasks. It utilizes an intelligent user interface to maximize data center productivity and helps achieve greater cost-effectiveness by accelerating hardware optimization, reliability, and uptime.

Developed on a completely redesigned architecture and engineered on CentOS with a PostgreSQL database, no additional operating system or database licenses are required for use with the new console. OpenManage Enterprise is also packaged and delivered as a virtual appliance supporting ESXI, Hyper-V and KVM for use in multiple environments including Linux, and Microsoft.

An updated HTML5 GUI and powerful search engine provide faster performance and response times while also unifying lifecycle management of critical Dell EMC PowerEdge tower, rack and modular platforms. Centralized role-based access and control help ensure that your IT infrastructure assets are covered and maintained in alignment with the priorities, skills, and assignment of IT staff.

Take Control With Operational Simplicity and Intelligent Automation

Intelligent automation is the key to a successful IT transformation. It helps reduce development time, maximize resources, and drastically lowers the cost of infrastructure management. To this end, OpenManage Enterprise employs a comprehensive north-bound RESTful API to enable intelligent automation and solution integration.

To minimize infrastructure downtime and reduce human error, it’s now easier than ever to establish and maintain one or multiple firmware baselines for groups of PowerEdge servers – and also easy to automate updates on non-compliant firmware.

With a scalable architecture and powerful integrated security, PowerEdge servers are truly the bedrock of the modern data center. Add to that the intelligent automation provided by OpenManage Enterprise and you have the tools to push innovation further and faster than ever to achieve your IT transformation goals.
